Deep Fried Pork Belly with Nam Yu $8

Mr Hawker - Deep Fried Pork Belly with Nam Yu

Two things I like very much, anything deep fried and pork belly. I must admit I’ve not had deep fried pork belly and while it wasn’t eaten at it’s optimum as I got a takeaway order, the pork belly with a dip into the nam yu (a spicy sauce of sorts) was quite tasty but I didn’t think the combination works. For me pork belly cooked long and slow or roasted is definitely the way to go, not deep fried.


Penang Style Fried Kway Teow $10

Mr Hawker - Penang Style Fried Kway Teow

From my first time visit to chinatown in Kuala Lumpur years ago I’ve always taken a liking to kway teow so the Penang style kway teow was an easy choice. This version certainly carries a spicy hit of chilli which livens up the dish. The flat rice noodles are super super tender almost like silky ribbons. Great flavour but wanted more oomph.


Rice Flour Roll with Mushroom and Shredded Pork $10

Mr Hawker - Rice Flour Roll Pork

I also got the rice flour roll with mushrooms and shredded pork. I was imagining a different dish to that presented but I wasn’t fazed and tucked in. Like the kway teow, the rice noodles were once again super silky and tender and this dish was much milder which was a welcome relief to the spicy kway teow. This dish still carried good flavour with tender mushrooms and tasty pork. I also got teh terik and enjoyed sipping on that while waiting for my takeaway order. Very very soothing.


Mr Hawker Food Review Summary

Verdict: Maylands welcomes Mr Hawker, a Malaysian style eatery offering all the dishes one will find at a bargain price. I hopped on the train and chose a few dishes as part of my takeaway order. The first was deep fried pork belly. Whilst not eaten straightaway at it’s optimum, I didn’t think pork belly worked well being deep fried despite it being tender and tasty with that spicy nam ju chilli sauce. For me pork belly cooked long and slow or roasted is preferable. I also got a serve of Penang style kway teow which presented super silky ribbons of flat rice noodles in a very spicy chilli mix. The kway teow was tasty but I would have like more flavour. Thankfully I also chose another dish being much milder in flavour, the rice flour roll with mushrooms and shredded pork. It’s a noodle dish and once again the rice noodles were super tender. The flavour is quite tasty with the mushrooms and shredded pork adding additional body. I also got a soothing cup of hot teh terik which was really delicious. The flavours of the food at Mr Hawker are pretty good though lacking a bit in intensity. Mornings and late afternoons serve certain dishes such as roti canai, other dishes are available all day.
